In result of a global pandemic that has turned the motorsport industry upside down, the egos have been set aside.
While other tracks have hosted open wheel + stock car doubleheaders over the past decades, this is the first time that both of the crown jewel championships of American Open Wheel racing and American Stock Car racing have came together.


ImageImageImage
For the first time in North American racing history: the NASCAR Cup Series & the NTT IndyCar Series will come together to host a doubleheader race weekend at the same venue - that being the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

decided to just the same main post for both race threads basically

obviously this is the thread for the Cup race on the oval, and the Busch race on the road course. Race threads for the IndyCar race, ARCA race and other NASCAR + ARCA regional events are at the bottom of the main post.

probably to keep things easy on Indy given they already run the IndyCars without the oval corner in terms of timing & scoring loops etc.. Maybe something with FIA sanctioning involves it too tho

He missed a race at Loudon way back in 2001 (the one that got rescheduled due to the terrorist attacks on September 11th). He started 663 straight since.

He didn't run the full season in 2001 anyway, his rookie year was 2002.

I mean, if he actually has the virus, that's his retirement isn't it?

Well, retirement from NASCAR anyway...

He wouldn’t have tested positive if he didn’t “have the virus” right? I guess his status is going to depend on how badly it impacts him (hopefully it’ll be completely asympomatic).

depends on how quickly he recovers from the virus, he's asymptomatic presently & his wife's symptoms were mild level / allergy-like apparently. Hopefully both will recover and the symptoms + long term effects don't worsen

to be allowed back in the car, he has to be cleared by his doctors and have 2 negative tests

which might not be long from now, or might take a while. There's already folks that are recovered from the virus at the track this weekend (most notably Dale Jarrett, who was quarantined like 3 weeks ago & is working the pagoda with Tirico & NBC)
